Sidney is REALLY going to miss Ava.
Everyone is smiling and excited and happy!
After going to half-day Kindergarten for ONE day, Ava decided that she was ready to go full day..."as long as I won't be too sad that she'll be gone all day." What??!!??!! I was NOT prepared for this. Cut to morning drop off on day 2 of full-day Kindergarten:
This image of my little Ava and her giant back pack walking off to school so brave is burned in my mind and I still get choked up when I think about it. Yep, I'm that mom. Oh well.
To make sure that Ava thinks about me at least once during the day, I made these cute little Lunch Box Notes.
I used a few craft punches and card stock to create the note cards.
What to write on the Note Card?
Keep it simple
Ava is just learning to read so I kept the message simple. Some ideas are:
- I Love You
- Try Hard
- You are a Great Kid
- Be Kind
- Do Your Best
- Be a Good Listener
- Raise Your Hand
I used stamps and stickers to decorate the note card. Michael's has stamps in their dollar bins and you can buy huge packs of stickers for a dollar too. You could also draw pictures.

Is there a special occasion coming up? Maybe a birthday or holiday. Count down the days to that special day on your lunch box notes.
